Things to do:

Brooklyn Mixer is a large, two-floored beats and booze joint, specialising in cocktails and a good range of ales: from European and North American lagers to fruit beer and even lambics. Shame there’s not more local stuff mind, with Liverpool hardly short of microbreweries.

Located in a spruced up Georgian town house, Brooklyn Mixer also has a grungier basement bar with great roster of local DJs spinning local tunes, hip-hop, electronica and US-leaning indie. Try the craft beers, and alternate with a Whiskey Sour. Repeat to fade.
